The Ohio Mid-Eastern Governments Association recently closed on the largest loan in it's Revolving Loan Fund's history, and the business on the receiving end of the loan is up and running in its new, expanded facility. OMEGA partnered with Huntington Bank to finance the expansion project, with the RLF accounting for 15 percent of the project.

Three NE Communities Join Forces with Shared RLF for Housing
A unique cooperative housing agreement between McCook, Benkelman and Cambridge has received a major vote of confidence from the Nebraska Department of Economic Development.

IL Gov. Signs $45B Infrastructure Construction Bill
Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed a $45 billion state construction bill.

NC Senate Clears RLF for Rural Hospitals
